Kanya T-Slot Aluminum Profiles

Kanya t-slot aluminum profiles have been a European standard since 1975. In fact, Kanya invented the quick connector used in t-slot systems throughout the world today. This well-thought out system is easy to use and completely interchangeable. Among the advantages of the Kanya t-slot system:

  • Single slot size (8mm) for all aluminum profiles eliminates duplicate accessories like filler strips, nut plates, t-blots etc.
  • Center hole sized for standard M-series taps. Unlike other t-slot systems, the center hole on the Kanya system can be tapped for M16 or M14 (depending on profile size), allowing direct threading of accessories like casters and leveling feet.
  • The original, spring-loaded quick connector is stronger and easier to use than competing systems.
  • Unique “panel slot” extrusions provide a near-flush finish for thin panels while retaining all of the functionality of the original Kanya t-slot system.

Roller Tracks for Workstations

Roller tracks for use in combination with Kanya extrusion.  Quickly and easily create workstations that require storage or conveyance.  Ideal for light- to medium duty conveying, Kanban systems, and applications that require frequent replenishment. Typical applications include:

  • Roller transport via gravity for all types of boxes
  • Roller transport connections between workstations
  • Parts conveyance to workstations
  • Accurate positioning of boxes

These roller tracks, together with mounting clamps, easily mount to Series 30, 40, 50mm t-slot framing. Options include with or without guide flanges, and standard or ESD finish.

Application Examples

Our Skills Translate to All Industries

Now, don’t put us in a box and write us off, as specialists for certain industries. We solve problems, no matter the industry. We provide versatile structural frames, machine stands work stations and test tables that allow techs to decrease adjustment time between tests or move entire systems. Our mounting systems are strong and stable, yet can be delivered in kits or completely assembled.

Industries We Serve and Examples of Our Work

MATERIALS SCIENCE

This base required very precise positioning of the horizontal beams for the small-angle x-ray scattering instrumentation installation.

We used Kanya aluminum extrusions commonly known as t-slots, to build this machine base. The machine base needed to be very robust to hold the weight of the machine. It also had to be light enough to be shipped relatively inexpensively. The Kanya aluminum extrusions insured perfectly parallel and perpendicular lines for the instrumentation to be attached easily and accurately.

The base included enclosures to hold industry standard 19" rack mounted components. We finished these enclosures with polycarbonate doors that gave the lab base a clean look.

This is an ongoing production project for a major Materials Science Company.

QUANTUM PHYSICS LAB

This base required it to support a 2,500 lb optics table with pneumatic vibration isolators. The base resides in a low magnetic field environment, so the structure had to be non- magnetic. Since it is about six feet tall and twelve feet wide at the base it needed to be shipped as a kit, for on-site construction.

The solution: Kanya heavy-duty aluminum extrusion or t-slots as they are non-magnetic. In addition, all the connectors, isolation pads and floor mounting plates were made from 304L stainless steel. The aluminum extrusion design is rigid and this feature minimized flex in the base, which was another specification.

MEDICAL DEVICE PRODUCTION

This machine stand was designed to ease operator fatigue and be able to switch from vertical to horizontal in order to produce multiple products.

The A-Line Automation team worked closely with the medical device production design team. The first solution was to adjust the working height of the machine base, hydraulically with a hand crank and optionally with an electric motor. The second was to allow the machine to move from horizontal to vertical in 15° increments.

This allowed for a multitude of different product production from a single machine and saved the customer significant capital investment in multiple machines.

Dobot Robots and Accessories

Looking for Educational Robots?

If you are a teacher looking for an affordable educational robot, A-Line Automation can help. Robotics is revolutionizing industrial production throughout the Southeast. STEM teachers in the region know STEM robots are a great way to prepare students for the future. 

The Dobot Magician is just one of the many programmable robots we offer from Dobot USA.  We make your purchase of a coding robot easy, as A-Line Automation is located in nearby Concord, North Carolina, the heart of the Southeast region.

Programmable Robots Teach Skills

We want students to be prepared for the future. Students working with Dobots, learn real world skills integrating elements of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science into their learning. All at a cost that is 95% lower than the cost of an industrial robot. So, it’s perfect for school budgets.

Why Dobots?

The Dobot is not a toy. Many companies prepare their engineers and techs on the Dobot Magician before installing large scale industrial robots. The Dobot can be used in “makerspaces” which combine manufacturing and real world education, When you install a Dobot Magician in a room with laser cutters, CNC machines and 3D printers, then connect them all - you'll see your students creativity explode!

There is a curriculum for every level of student:

  • The first curriculum is for K-5 students and prepares them for life with robots
  • A second curriculum teaches 6-12 grades how to use robots
  • And, the third curriculum teaches senior level high school through first level college students more in-depth content

Add a 3-D printing kit to create specialized teaching aids for any subject you are teaching. For example you could build molecule models for Chemistry, a planetary gearhead for Physics or a topographical map for Geography.

The Dobot line of programmable robots can help you teach students about Computer Science, Outputs and Inputs and commonly used programming languages like Python script.

Ultimately, your students will have fun learning with robots from Dobot USA.

Dobot 3D Printers

3D PRINTERS

Combine a Dobot Robot with a 3D printer and watch your students get truly excited! A 3D printer brings it all to life.  It’s the finishing touch because students see their robot create a finished product or use computer numerical control (CNC) to engrave and carve. These real world applications are meaningful to your students.
